This is a pocket-sized paperback book that has been translated from the original Danish edition that was published in 1976. The book is nicely organized and is laid out so that the reader can easily find needed information. In less than 70 pages, 16 sexually transmitted diseases are succinctly reviewed. In addition to the text, 22 pages of color plates of good quality are included. Many of the disease entities are covered in less than a page and some are allocated only a short paragraph. Thus, the book should be considered more a detailed outline than a comprehensive review. The brevity of the text is not a major drawback, for the book was, as the authors state in the introduction, "intended to provide the amount of knowledge reasonably expected of medical students and practicing physicians." Unfortunately, a major fault of the text that may keep it from reaching this goal
